RIP Andy Rourke & Ray Stevenson


Almost let it slip by me that former bassist for The Smiths passed away last Friday. I love the entirety of The Smiths' catalog, and all of Andy's basslines, but this is one of my favorites.


Ray Stevenson passed away yesterday. Wow. I know he's come to the forefront of cultural discussion in the last two years with the success of RRR - a movie I have no interest in ever sitting through after my friend Shailesh 'streamlined' it for me months before it took the world by storm - but here's the trailer to possibly my favorite version of the Punisher to hit the screen (Bernthal is awesome, so it's a bit of a draw):

Punisher: Warzone is just a crazy fucking movie - from the opening with Stevenson using a broken pencil to fix his broken nose to the exploding gymnastic villains, this one took a moment upon first viewing to grasp its tone, but once I got there, I never looked back. 


Brand New - Daisy
Ghost - Phantomime EP
The Ocean - Holocene
VOLA - Witness
The Ravenonettes - In and Out of Control
Peter Gabriel - So


Fortunes change as the cosmic Wheel turns unrelenting, What will this bring me today? No idea, but I'll embrace it.
